SHOULD PATERNOSTER ROAD BE CLOSED?

Tony Piccolo at Two Wells Road extension end with the rail corridor

Reid residents will be asked for their opinions about a proposed road closure prior to the council taking any further action to formally close Paternoster Road at its intersection with the disused rail corridor.

 

Earlier this year, Light Regional Council wrote to the Surveyor-General advising of its intention to commence the process of road closure which resulted in Local Member of Parliament, Mr Tony Piccolo receiving notification of the Council’s plans.

 

In response to the notification, Mr Piccolo wrote to Reid residents and held a number of street corner meetings seeking their views with many not supporting the closure move.

 

Mr Piccolo said the Council had taken action to close the road as the area near the disused rail corridor, as it had become a haven for rubbish dumping and other anti-social behaviour.

 

“Residents have complained about the noise associated with illegal motorcycle and motor vehicle use,” said Mr Piccolo.

 

“Local people have also experienced vandalism to their properties which abut the rail corridor.”

 

In view of the feedback received from residents Mr Piccolo asked the Council to place the process on hold pending further engagement with the community.

 

Mr Piccolo said he will be writing to all residents in the area in the next few weeks seeking views on a range of options to deal with the anti-social behaviour at the end of Paternoster Road, with road closure being one option.

 

“In addition to the survey, Mr Piccolo will be holding a “Zoom meeting” with residents to ensure they get every opportunity to be involved in the decision making process.

 

“It is clear from the feedback I have received residents would like the opportunity to consider other options to deal with the issue.”

 

Mr Piccolo said Light Regional Council have been very co-operative and helpful and are currently preparing some background information which will help residents gain a better understanding of the issues and possible solutions and help them to respond to the survey.
